Chemical Structure


Product Introduction:

Acetophenone, also known as Acetofenon, is the simplest aromatic ketone in which the aromatic nucleus (benzene ring) is directly attached to the carbonyl group.

Acetophenone can be used as an intermediate in the manufacture of drugs, resins, flavorings and tear gas, with the molecular formula C8H8O.

Its pure product is a white plate-like crystal, and it is a colorless or slightly yellow transparent liquid when the temperature is above 20 °C.

Acetofenon is slightly soluble in water, easily soluble in various organic solvents, and can be volatilized with steam.

The molecular structure of acetophenone: the methyl C atom forms a bond with the sp3 hybrid orbital, and the benzene ring and the carbonyl C atom form a bond with the sp2 hybrid orbital.

Acetofenon can undergo the addition reaction of carbonyl, the reaction of α active hydrogen, and the electrophilic substitution reaction on the benzene ring, which mainly generates meta products.

Acetophenone can be prepared by reacting benzene with acetyl chloride, acetic anhydride or acetic acid under the catalysis of aluminum trichloride. In addition, acetophenone is a by-product in the catalytic oxidation of ethylbenzene to styrene.

Acetophenone is mainly used as a raw material for pharmaceuticals and other organic synthesis, and also for the preparation of spices.
